Happy Earth Day!!!
I’ve been saving these photos for the right occasion. I’m glad I finally get to share them with you. Today is Earth Day and, although we should be mindful of and care for our planet every day, I’m glad we have a day to celebrate environmental awareness. After all, we all have the right to clean air, safe water, and a healthy planet.
My original plan with this look was to go give you inspiration for an upcoming engagement or photo-shoot, but I’m glad it became so much more than that and here’s why:
When I was preparing for this shoot, I was planning to put on a pair of shoes, but I completely forgot them at home and decided to go along with it barefoot. And, it was the most satisfying thing ever. Feeling the earth and the grass on my feet made me feel an incredible connection to the planet; my body was getting this unbelievable energizing feeling that’s hard to explain. I felt fantastic.
From that day on, I’ve made a conscious effort to connect with nature. I would like you to do the same – I promise you you’ll love it.
Here are some things you can do to connect with the planet:
Visit a nature park with your family; walk, hike, plan a picnic.
Go to the beach:
Make sure to bring a bag and gloves with you and collect plastic and trash that doesn’t belong there. You’ll get to exercise walking around and it can be a great activity for children.
Start your own garden:
Develop energy awareness at home. Energy is a resource and we should conserve it; same as water.
Go to the farmer’s market and get your favorite fruits and vegetables there.
Recycle as much as you can.
I hope you enjoyed this post and don’t forget to be gentle to our planet.
